Set me free why don't you baby
Get out of my life why don't you baby
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep comin' around
Playing with my heart
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me

You say although we broke up
You still wanna be just friends
But how can we be friends
When seeing you only breaks my heart again

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul need to be free
Now that you've got your freedom baby
You wanna still hold onto me
You don't want me for yourself
So let me find somebody else

Why don't you be a man about it
And set me free
You don't care a thing about me
You're just using me
So get out get out get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on

    this song is really good. i can relate totally so i know what its about. its about a guy who just cant stand to be without a girl and he knows he has to get over he because hes sure nuthing will ever hapen btween them again but she would like o be friends with him still cept the sight of her makes him remember how happy he was when he was with her and just wants her out of his life. there ya go thats my opinion and if it doesnt make any sense its because i suck at explaining things ___------Peace------____
